As mentioned in the promo video, these episodes will be spread across three DVD and Blu-ray volumes. Each volume will also include episodes of a short anime titled ‘Golden Travelogue Theater.’
Season 4’s debut has also revealed the new theme songs for the anime and the staff has released the opening and ending credits too.
The opening theme is ‘NEVER SAY GOODBYE feat. Mummy-D’ by ALI.
The ending theme is ‘Subete ga Soko ni Arimasu You ni.’ by THE SPELLBOUND.
Both the songs perfectly encapture the season’s essence as the path only gets harder from here. Sugimoto and his group have successfully come out of Russia and back to Japan, but that doesn’t guarantee their safety.
The first episode of the latest season shows the group getting targeted by a Russian sniper in search of Ogata, and mistaking them for his peers. Funnily enough, Sugimoto sorts the whole thing out and the sniper becomes an unlikely ally.
In search of the fabled gold, Sugimoto and Asirpa have encountered various personalities, adventures, and dangers, Ogata being one of them. The sniper may not be their greatest threat but can surely bring great distress to the pair.
Moreover, the previous trailers have mentioned that the sniper will be one of the focal points this season. So let’s see how that escalates.
Keeping all that in mind, let’s see where the characters’ fate leads them this time.
Do let us know your crazy speculations and theories regarding this season.
